3. Community Priorities
  1. Pocklington Town Centre area (Evenings):

Throughout October we are to continue our high visibility patrols of the Pocklington Town Centre
area to deter potential anti-social behaviour. These patrols include regular checks on peripheral
areas at Pocklington Infants’ School, Maxwell Road (periodic reports of criminal damage and
youths causing annoyance), All Saints Church (periodic reports of anti-social behaviour on
an evening), the Tennis Club (reports of anti-social behaviour, (ASB)) and town car parks
(reports of low level anti-social behaviour). Criminal offenders will be challenged robustly,
arrested or reported for summons. Penalty Notices for Disorder or warning letters may be
used in appropriate cases however, those who offend should expect to be arrested and dealt
with if their anti social behaviour amounts to criminal offending.  The exercise of discretion
should not be expected.

  1. Pocklington – Vehicle related nuisance
To reduce anti-social behaviour (ASB) and its impact on the communities within the Pocklington area as
well as taking positive action against offenders who cause ASB with their vehicles.  Hotspot areas in
Pocklington will be checked regularly and any drivers using their cars to cause alarm or distress will
be considered for warnings and possible seizure of their vehicles under Section 59 of the Police Reform Act.

4. Crime Reduction Advice
Be prepared.

With winter on its way and the evenings starting to get darker, please consider the suggestions
below and be prepared!

  1. Home

Don’t let a burglar think that no one is at home.  Always leave a light on in more than one room,
eg a bedroom, kitchen or lounge and consider leaving a radio on too.

Use timer switches so that the lights come on as it starts to get dark especially if you are at work
or going to be out all day. Change the times on the switches so that the lights come on at different
times to create the illusion that someone is moving around inside the house.

Consider installing outside sensor lights that are activated by movement, especially at the back of
your property or dusk to dawn lighting that comes on automatically as it gets dark.

Ensure all doors and windows are locked and that no keys are left in doors or window locks.
Secure your garden with a fence and a lockable gate and don’t leave tools or ladders in the garden
which may assist a burglar.

  1. Cars

Make sure you check your lights before you set out in case a bulb has blown. (You might even
consider carrying a spare light bulb or two)

Make sure your window washer is full of water and screen wash and that there is anti- freeze in
your radiator.

Check the tyres. Have they got a decent amount of tread on them and are they at the correct
pressure? If in doubt, get them checked.

Are your registration plates and car lights clean or do they need a wash?

Think about what you might need if you break down in the cold.  Is there a blanket or a torch in
the car? Consider having a mobile phone with you too.

Do not leave any valuables in your car eg a satnav or dash cam (remember to remove the cradle
and any lasting sucker marks on the windscreen)

Never leave your keys in the ignition: a prime example is when paying for petrol or warming your
car on an icy morning.
